Hi all!
During BattleMeshV8 we knew some community networks activists from
Greece, seems that there will be a talk about Libre-Mesh in the
"Athens Wireless Summit 2015" [1].
Due to the lack of documentation they had hard time trying to
understand/use LiMe.
Let's write some documentation, I think that Libre-Mesh is stable enough!!
(and, needless to say, the lack of documentation is damaging the project)

Athens Wireless Summit 2015
Call for Participation / Talks

Dear All,

If you are involved in a community network, if you have deployed
wireless or fiber technology for a community network, if you love the
commons, if you are from the academia running a wireless or community
related testbed, then this call is for you!  We are pleased to
announce that Athens Wireless Metropolitan Network (AWMN) is
organizing a two day event titled «Athens Wireless Summit 2015». It
will take place during the weekend of the 19th and 20th of September
2015 at Impact Hub Athens Greece. It would be our pleasure to have you
there and we encourage you to participate with a talk or a workshop or

What is it?

The Athens Wireless Summit 2015 is a two day event which aims to bring
people together, from the academia, the world of commons, open source
and wireless networks communities and all those involved or interested
in wireless network technologies, in order to meet with each other,
exchange views and experiences, explore possibilities for cooperation
and synergies and to promote the benefits of developing modern
telecommunication infrastructure as an enhancement factor for a

We aspire to include presentations, discussions, workshops, social
events and exhibitions of wireless network technologies, the
development of network infrastructure and shared services, the
promotion of the social character on developing community networks by
citizens for citizens as well as developing networks of active people
around these; with examples like the cooperation structures that exist
or can be developed between these communities in Greece and abroad.

Where and When

The event will take place on Saturday the 19th and Sunday the 20th of
September 2015 at Impact Hub, Karaiskaki 28 in Athens. The entire
building of Impact Hub will be available for the two day event. This
gives us the opportunity to schedule both seminars and workshops in
parallel flows. For more information about Impact Hub, please visit
their site at: http://athens.impacthub.net

Format and content of the talks

We aspire to keep a balance between community networks, academia,
everyday real community applications and related technology subjects.
Subjects may be anything related to community networks ranging from
applications, wireless technology, mesh protocols, testbeds, other
routing protocols, social related subjects, IoT, related research
subjects and anything that will make those two days productive, fun
and beneficial to all. Related Talks or Workshops will be grouped
together and be placed on the schedule in order to have cohesion of
subjects and help participants choose their tracks. Finally we welcome
proposals of anything you think may be of interest to community
network enthusiasts. The format can be of any kind, for example a
presentation, talk, discussion, debate, practical workshop, or film
screening. The suggested duration for talks is 20 minutes where
workshops can be arranged to take anything up to 1 hour depending on
slot and space availability.

Lightening talks

Lightening talks are shorter talks which can be submitted after the
main workshops/talks deadline, to give everybody the opportunity to
present their project/idea. Each lightening talk will be 7 minutes
long, followed by 3 minutes of questions. Projector slides can be
submitted in EPS or PDF format to: aws-submissions at awmn.net
